    Default New psp model (Europe-only) (News form Gamescom)

    New €99 PSP model loses WiFI, debuts this Fall in Europe

    Speaking at Sony's Gamescom press conference, new SCEE president Jim Ryan revealed that a new model of the PSP will debut in Europe later this year. This new PSP variant will sport a refined design, though it will not include WiFi. The kicker, however, is the price: a mere €99.00. The new model is expected to launch this fall in Europe. No mention was made of a launch in other territories, but we'll let you know as soon as we hear something!


    Update: PlayStation Blog Europe has posted a few more details about the device. The new PSP will be dubbed the E-1000 and will feature the same matte finish as the PlayStation 3 slim console. As the handheld will lack WiFi, the only way to connect to the PlayStation Store will be via Sony's Media Go software. So, uh, we hope there aren't any Mac users among the E-1000's prospective buyers.

    A range of discounted UMD titles is also planned to launch alongside the device, including EyePet Adventures, Invizimals: The Lost Tribes and FIFA 12. Each game in the new lineup will be priced at €9.99.

    Strangely, another feature completely lacking from the E-1000: Liquid metal.
    so the with the PSP!go there, no UMD

    now with the E-1000
    no wifi?
    so
    no multiplayer
    no PSN
    no web


    but it is only €99


    update:








    [Update: Sony has stated that this will be a Europe-only deal and won't come to North America. Makes sense, since Europe's apparently still so keen on the system.]
    Wait, what?
    Yes, you read that right. Not content to get us all hyped for the PlayStation Vita, Sony has surprisingly announced a brand new PSP! SCEE's Andrew House made the announcement at Gamescom, calling it a "Value PSP" and pricing it at 99 Euro for the PAL market.
    The move comes with House claiming that the PSP has seen a resurgence in Europe, and claiming that it's now become "the perfect entry level handheld." This was announced to a rather ... slow applause from the audience. They were probably wondering "WTF?" along with the Destructoid staff.
    Well, there you go. A sleeker, cheaper PSP. Seems Sony isn't quite done with the "Walkman of the 21st Century" just yet!


    PSP 1.5 got on USA first day is was 1.5 NOW 4.01 M33-2 -> 5.00 M33-6(1.50 addon),

    What a waste of money producing that thing. Tons of other places it could have gone. And no downloading + purchasing games through wifi? Man that would suck.

    It happen in PSP Go and now this, Sony should fired the man behind all of this.
    They should add more feature like a touchscreen or more CPU or perhaps a built it camera.

    If it is Hackable later on, it may be usefull for some. I want something cheap for like my music and movies and keep my Slim for games. And also what about kids? Im sure parents that love their PSP's and kids are always touching their real baby lol.. may want something like this so they can play. But yeah... PSVita will replace All the rest. So maybe the kids can play with the old one.. if they have one.

    I would buy it as an intermediate PSP between my Slim and the NGP but the lack of WiFi is an extreme turn off.
